How do you sing 'We're jamming and we hope you like jamming, too' in Russian? Kremlin's sat-nav spoofing revealed
Re: "Misinformation coming from Russia"
Craig Murray? Really? Tin foil hat on standby. A failed politician turned failed poet who now uses that blog to peddle pro-#terrorussia anti western conspiracy theory rubbish.
If you read anything on Craig Murrays blog, assume the opposite is true. Like that cartoon attempting to pretend all #terrorussia did was leak some emails. Disingenuous at best, deliberate propaganda bs realistically.
Much like comments in poor English using intellectually worthless whataboutery to imply everyone else is somehow as bad as #terrorussia.
millions of years in the bank? More like less that 50.
If Guy McPherson (and a range of climate science heavyweights) are correct then the Clathate gun has gone off and we'll be lucky if there are any people left by 2070. And if there are, they'll likely be a few thousand cowering in specially prepared bunkers ( http://survivalcondo.com/ ) waiting for Methane firestorm shockwaves or increased geological activity to crack their flimsy habitats.
We WISH we had a few million years in the bank.
Re: Wrong question
Absolutely. They're also missing the fact that driving is a rules based system and we've all had the rules drilled into us. It's a moving puzzle we're adept at. Psychologically we should be able to incorporate the two much as we do with a satnav;- we can glance at it, instantly read what the symbols mean and incorporate that into the road ahead and our driving strategy. Satnavs haven't caused a huge spike in accidents have they?
All this research has proved is people facing a test they're unfamiliar with in a pressure environment are distracted when the already unfamiliar puzzle changes. As Ledswinger so eloquently said;- "What a load of old cock" ""Boffins" my arse."
Re: "Cheap Android tablets feel like shit"
Strange, the two I've bought (for half the price of this, WITH HD screens) felt smooth, powerful and handled all the apps and games thrown at them... Not that I'm saying Apple kit doesn't, but I suspicion you of telling complete porkies about working with kit or ever having touched an android...
Oh, and while I'm in here moaning about fanbois, how can anyone really recommend a lowered spec'd alternative without HD (and that's a biggie!) for twice the price? It's a bloody tablet! IS there an affordable HD tablet in the ipad range? I'd quite like one. But can we get an impartial hack to review it please?
(An Ainovo and an Archos in case anyones wondering)
what did you expect?
The law society defended the lawyers, shock horror. Reminds me of when I complained to them about being ripped off by a lawyer - nothing happened.
He should file a complaint with the recently formed independent legal complaints service! A service formed BECAUSE the law society are famously protective of their own.
Erm, yes actually.
I'm a little surprised that neither the author nor the commentards seem to be aware that this 'craze' swept the UK (the yanks as well I think) about 2 years ago under the name of "The lying down game"
It even featured as headline on Sky news at one point.
So yes, it could quite easily have been some pissed up chav from Stanwell or something. I've seen pics of ground crew "planking" in the intakes for 747 turbines at Heathrow etc...
A quick check of the forums or related guides would tell you a couple of things - very few people use LED lights, they need a lot more work to be viable. Most people are switching from HID setups (e.g Metal Halides) to low power CFLs. Even with High Intensity Discharge light 1,000 watts per square metre would be REALLY high and cause potentially insurmountable heat issues
you can't catch anonymous
Anon numbers thousands, maybe tens of thousands all over the planet. Sure, a few of the less able beginners (newfags as they're called) may get v&, but think of it in Darwinian terms. The bulk of them will be behind "Over 9000" proxies... :D
Anonymous = final boss of the internet.
1st rule of the internet = don't annoy 4 chan!
this is not a title. No, really.
Am I the only one that thought, "If some pickpocket lifts my phone on the bus / tube / high street" does that mean they can then go buy stuff with my money without needing PIN / signature etc"
And yes, I would obviously report it stolen the moment I noticed but that could be as long as an hour and you can do a lot of spending in London in an hour!

As believable as porcine aviation and pyschic octopus!
But seriously, unless he's talking nano-swarms I suspect he's just pulled something clever sounding out of his arse!
And for a nano-swarm, to function it would need to maintain some form of swarm integrity as each individual nano-bot would only have a microscopic fraction of the swarms total memory (i.e. ability to actually store any info stolen) and a minuscule fraction of the transmitting equipment.
Desk fans anyone?
excuse me pardon
"criticism from telcos, who argued that Skype and its users were in effect benefiting from their networks without paying for them"
Errr... I PAY FOR MY BANDWIDTH!
Kindly don't tell me what I can or can't do with it especially given the tiny amount that a voice call to my sister uses. Yes I'm sure they'd love to charge me for the call as well but they can f**k off!
